Galco Industrial Electronics Inc. announced Jan. 27 that it’s acquired Zesco Inc., a regional automation solutions provider in Brecksville, Ohio.

“The acquisition of Zesco further positions Galco as a global leader in the industrial automation and motion control industry,” said Allison Sabia, president and CEO of Galco. “Zesco’s expertise and experience with the world’s top brands in industrial automation combined with Galco’s extensive offerings in the industry is a win-win for their customers and ours.”

Zesco specializes in drives, motion control, and automation, and serves customers in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. It offers 16 product lines in 50 product categories, so acquiring it not only expands Galco’s catalog of manufacturers, but also increases Galco’s drives market share.

With over 60 years of experience, Zesco’s industrial automation expertise also aligns with Galco’s mission to provide customers with the highest level of service and technical support and the most comprehensive selection of industrial electronics and automation products and services.

“We’re excited about the future of Zesco as a Galco company. Galco has the same fervor and commitment to providing automation solutions to their customers as we do,” says Tim Sustersic, president of Zesco. “This also gives Zesco expanded capabilities in customer service, product application, engineering and manufacturing support to better serve our customers.”
